His book, The Voice of the People: Hamish Henderson and Scottish Cultural Politics (EUP, 2015) was shortlisted for the Saltire Research Book of the Year.

Between 2014-18 he was Assistant Professor of Modern English Literature at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. In 2018 Corey was appointed as Lecturer in Twentieth-Century Scottish Literature at Glasgow.

Corey is the editor of Hamish Henderson's Collected Poems (Polygon, 2019), and the author of articles and book chapters on balladry and critical theory; extremism and poiesis; war poetry; anonyms and the folk process; class and nationalism; flyting; and folk revivalism.
